Hi

I am trying to create an LDAP query to create a filter rule that populates an address list in Exchange System Manager (2003 SP1) but an restricted by the fact that the 'helper' condition only has "Starts with" and "Ends with" etc. I would like to have "Contains"  but cant do from the query builder. Wondering if it is possible to import or manually amend the query somewhere so I can make the search more flexible?

Cheers

Charlie

Sure thing.  In the filter rules box that comes up, select custom search, and then the advanced tab, you can then paste your LDAP query right into there.

for contains you can do *whateveryourlookingfor* which is esentially a contains.

Sometimes I use the saved queries in AD to build these queries as it shows you the LDAP code of what you are building.
